Rag Ball Treatment

Back to using the imagination and trying to use objects I have stored here. Last night while trying to sleep I came up with this idea to make rag ball fringe. I thought it may look cute with the feed sacks I washed yesterday that my friend Judy had told me to take ..... I wanted something real easy care so I just tied the bottom feed sack onto the grate of the chair..This way if it happens to get wet I can hang it back to dry. All my deck furniture is grated so I can make fringe on several pieces if I want... I have a few big rag balls as you see in the pic... I just cannot have real elegant outdoor furniture as we are in the open country and the wind and elements takes a terrible tole... This is perfect with NO COST but I think it has a personality......I'm headed back outside for more rag ball fringe......The area I am working in the sun is shinning on the deck but it is chilly but just wonderful to feel the warmth of the sun.... To be continued.....

How cute! Just think, a different color fringe could be added for different seasons or holidays too!
I'm thinking red, white & blue for 4th of July on my porch. I can fringe may chairs there, and the squate table that matches too!
